Have you ever wondered why this day people feel alone?
Is it because of our society's underlying tone?
They say, "don't kill or take a poor soul's life"
but then they fill our pockets with a gun and razor knife.
They say size doesn't matter, we all are equal and free,
but why everytime when I open "People" there is a model who wears size 3
They say that caring for your kids is what we do
but then we see children with bruised eyes and a heart in two!
They say teen's are fine, and by life's rules they abide
but we see some filled with so much pain that they commit suicide
We say they'll stop smoking if we up the age to 18 to sell a smoke
but yet every minute a 10 year old will take a puff and choke
We decided if schools passed out condoms, babies wouldn't come
but yet pregnancy in teens is on a high for some
*It's time to stop believing in all the things they say
And view the world with open eyes as it exists today.
The changes must come from within from folks like me and you
And then perhaps the things they say may possibly come true.
